“With an expected world population of 10 billion people by 2050, our planet, our businesses, and even basic food security, are at risk.

“We will have to produce more with less and ensure that it’s done in a way that is good for the people and the environment, now and in the future,” Solidaridad said in a release ahead of its global meeting dubbed Ambition 2020 to be held at Senchi, 82 km north of the national capital.

In its global strategic plan for 2016 – 2020, the CSO will be launching its strategy for developing, testing and promoting good agricultural, mining and industrial practices.

Based on four thematic pillars, the Ambition 2020 places emphasis on critical areas of interventions needed to transform agriculture into a commercially vibrant and competitive one based on technology, enabling policy environment with associated robust infrastructure.

These thematic areas include Good Practices, Robust Infrastructure, Landscape Management and Enabling Policy, while innovation development, youth and gender are cross-cutting themes of the strategic document.

“In line with our vision for a world in which all we produce and consume can sustain us while respecting the planet, each other and the next generations, Solidaridad West Africa Regional office is poised for strategic consultations and engagements with sub-regional and regional development partners,” the CSO said.

It said these consultations were aimed at creating sustained change that would lead socio economic prosperity and guarantee livelihoods for all. Enditem.
